Cubs, Felix Doubront agree at $1,925,000 to avoid arbitration

Felix Doubront Signs 1-YR Deal With Cubbies

(AP Photo/Matt Slocum)Former Red Sox starter Felix Doubront re-upped with Theo Epstein's Cubbies on a one-year, $1.925 million contract. Doubront—due to multiple injuries—had a disappointing 2014 (5.54 ERA). The lefty has always shown "plus" stuff, but has never really lived up to his potential. At age 27, he is still young enough to put it all together—and Chicago's North...

Can the Chicago Cubs Fix Felix Doubront

On Wednesday, the Chicago Cubs traded for left-handed starter Felix Doubront, sending the oft-traveled Player to be Named Later to the Boston Red Sox. Hey, in this slow-moving trade market, this counts as news. Of course, it’s a minor deal, and one that most of us who love to write about baseball hope gets trumped by bigger news during the course of the day. But often times...

Felix Doubront Trade Necessary For Red Sox, Worthwhile Deal For Cubs

REPORT: Doubront Could Be On Trade Block

(Jeff Zelevansky/Getty Images)According to a report by Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything), Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront might be on the trading block.

Boston Red Sox: Young arms stabilizing rotation

For a Boston Red Sox team that has yet to find any sort of consistency amongst the entire roster through 69 games, bright spots have been few and far between. But after injuries shelved Felix Doubront and Clay Buchholz — two important members of last year’s team who had failed to find the same success this season — a duo of young arms have emerged and stabilized what could...

Boston Red Sox: Solving the Felix Doubront problem

Year three was supposed to be the season he broke out. The young, left-handed Felix Doubront came into spring training in noticeably better shape and seemed destined to finally put it all together for a full season after an 11-6 campaign in 2013. Instead, Doubront has done the opposite, and has fallen flat on his face out of the gates, taking steps backwards rather than progressing...
